We went both for dinner and lunch and each time enjoyed the experience. Lunch on Friday was very busy with an expansive buffet, very well priced. We opted for a la carte and really enjoyed it. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

While the food was excellent, I was stunned that the restaurant adds a 28% surcharge on prices that are already steep. I paid nearly sixty dollars for a plate of tilapia, a steak, two bottles of water and a milk shake.

This is one of the best places to relax have a few tasty drink from fruit juice to cocktails then have a nice swim in the sun with the right crowd. You are right in the centre of the city but its all quite and the guys there are the mature.

We had a late lunch at the pool deck. It was great to be here on a sunny day, service was great, and the food was good. We had the Pork chops and Tilapia fillet.
